Part of the Parker Parks and Recreation Run Series, this sanctioned event is professionally timed (5k and 10K.) The Family Trek is about 1.3 miles of laid-back, outdoorsy fun. All participants who register before Wednesday, Aug. 2 will receive a commemorative item, and all participants are invited to enjoy a delicious post-race pancake breakfast and a chance to win prizes. The overall male/female finishers, as well as the top three finishers in each of the following divisions of the 5K and 10K will be awarded: 12 and under, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60+. All results are determined using "gun time," meaning the timing starts simultaneously for all participants in the category. The FREE Kids' Dash follows the race for children 8 and under; no registration necessary.
